Post-Conference Workshop:
Indirect Cost Recovery Deep Dive

The uniform guidance introduced sweeping changes to administrative requirements, cost principles, and audit requirements for Federal awards to non-Federal entities. These changes brought new responsibilities and opportunities to non-Federal entities. Unfortunately, most publicly available guidance focuses primarily on helping non-Federal entities cope with the added responsibilities, leaving little consideration to the new opportunities that are now available. The most overlooked of these opportunities is the ability, but more importantly the right, to Indirect Cost Recovery.

We live in a time where Federal budgets are shrinking and indirect rates are under increased scrutiny by awarding agencies. It has never been more important for organizations to ensure they are efficiently recovering their fair share of indirect costs on Federal awards. If “Set-It-And-Forget-It” is your organizations current strategy for indirect cost recovery this workshop is for you.

Join us for a post-conference workshop that focuses on specific strategies for indirect cost recovery and what organizations must do to maximize efficiency. We will address the following topics:

  • Indirect Cost Recovery Strategies
  • Effects of Targeted Revisions
  • Performance Monitoring
  • Evaluating Your Current Indirect Rate Structure:
    1. Organizational Goals
    2. Rate Caps
    3. Federal vs. non-Federal Programs
    4. Consistency
    5. Forecasting
    6. Maintaining Competitiveness
  • Common Pitfalls and How to Avoid Them
